Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake by Play’n GO

Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake

Swedish software giant Play’n GO recently announced its latest video slot, Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The title is the latest in the studio’s lineup for 2021.

The 5-reel video slot with 10-paylines is a sequel to the Rise of Merlin from 2019. According to the company’s official press release last week, Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake is a mobile-friendly video slot and is quite similar to its predecessor in terms of design. The gameplay revolves around the earlier period of the grant wizard’s life, including his relationship with Vivian’s famous enchantress.

Play’n GO confirmed that although the characters are often portrayed as adversaries, their relationship stemmed from romance, and storytellers rarely explore this aspect. The studio stated that the video slot offers punters plenty of lovable features including a free spin round that randomly expands to amplify the winning stake.

The studio also confirmed that the 3-row title is packed with a nest of features inside the free spins round apart from giving punters the chance to take away rewards worth 10,000 their initial stake.

A Word from the Studio

According to Martin Zettergren, Play’n GO’s Chief Product Officer, Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake follow in the footsteps on Coils of Cash, Frozen Gems, Piggy Bank Farm, New Year Riches, and Miner Donkey Trouble, all of which released within the past three months. He further assured fans that the latest title retains its own, despite its equally successful predecessor. Zettengren explained:

“Our team links titles together under a familiar tag. Players read the tag and instantly recognize the kind of content that’s on offer. We adhere to the strictest quality guidelines. Despite being familiar, each individual title brings something new to the table”.

Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake – Bonus Features

The slot follows the familiar “Book of” style format and is a worthy successor to the Merlin series. The title is highly volatile and offers punters a grand opportunity of multiplying their stake with the expanding special symbol feature during the free spins bonus. Additionally, the makers have added the so called Excalibur Spins, in which the chosen symbol is persistent.

Excalibur Spins

Players are familiar with the 5×3 grid, and the buy-in range is between €1 and €100 per spin. The RTP is flexible with the maximum being 96.2% while 10 to Ace are the standard symbols. The high-paying symbols include a staff, a hat, a crest, and Merlin himself and a line of five premium symbols can amplify the stake between 70 and 1,000 times.

The Lady of the Lake is the game’s wild symbol and offers the same value as Merlin. She substitutes any of the regular symbols when appearing on the reels. You can activate the free spins round when 3, 4, or 5 special symbols appear on the reels. Players are awarded eight spins as well as 1x, 10x, or 100x multipliers. Play’n GO also included the gamble feature, which triggers the game’s maximum potential but can also wipe the winning sum entirely.
